Kung Wala Nang Tulad Natin
Manacsa, S.A.M.C. (2016). Kung Wala Nang Tulad Natin, Unpublished Graduate Thesis, University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication.
A short film about a woman searching for things that are missing before her husband's burial only to realize that what she’s been searching for is not what she wishes to find.
Kung Wala Nang Tulad Natin makes use of a formalist approach patterned on Andrei Tarkovsky’s form of cinema as expounded in his book Sculpting in Time. The treatment brings out the contemplative state of both the characters and the audience, which is often lost in a number of dramas as they are presented with overwhelming close ups and fast cuts.
